How The Jets Need to Defend Odell Beckham [AUDIO]
The Jets are going up against one of the most dynamic receivers in the game in Odell Beckham Junior this Sunday. What's the best way for Gang Green to defend him?
"They have got to get enough pressure on Eli so that he doesn’t have time to make that long out throw to the back shoulder," said SNY Jets Analyst and former Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff, to "Armen and Levack".
"It’s not like you’re lining up on a punt return like you two guys on him. You play in and out, and you play over the top, you need to play in those areas. If Revis is ready to go, I’d put him on it."
It does not appear that Revis will be available for the Jets, which means Antonio Cromartie will most likely get the nod against OBJ.
"[The Jets] have to play more zone. Last week they did that, but when they blitzed, they brought the house. If they’re going to blitz Eli, bring the house and get to him, don’t cover forever. If not, rush four because the Jets front four is pretty good. Play two deep, five under zone, and you’ll give Odell Beckham Junior a lot of problems."
